The kitchen is usually very important to prospective buyers. Your kitchen may not be new and state-of-the-art, but it should look its best. Your kitchen should be spotlessly clean and well organized while your house is on the market. The counter tops should be clean and free of clutter, and the floor should shine. Appliances should be clean and in good working order. You may want to add a few decorator touches or replace cabinets, flooring, and even appliances for a small investment. Dollars spent on kitchen improvements usually pay major dividends when you sell your home. If you are planning to sell your home and need some advice in this area, an agent will be happy to discuss your options with you.
